Belville honors WithersRavenel’s Joe Boyd for service to Town

Community is one of the core values at WithersRavenel, and a recent honor bestowed upon one of our longtime engineers reflects his commitment to a growing coastal community.

The Town of Belville recently issued a proclamation recognizing Senior Project Manager Joe Boyd, PE, for his extensive and longstanding commitment to the Town. While Joe’s contributions to Belville are numerous, the proclamation noted that:

  •  Joe has served as a member of the Planning Board since 2009, including as its Vice Chairman. He has dedicated thousands of hours to revising the Town’s Zoning Ordinance and reviewing site plans, attending public input meetings related to the adoption of the 2010, 2013, 2020 and 2030 Vision Plans, and played an integral part in approving the Brunswick Riverwalk Project.
  • He has also served as Vice Chairman of the Board of Adjustment and a member of the Technical Review Committee since 2009.
  •  Joe has promoted economic development within the Town, and through WithersRavenel is working on the engineering of the Rice Hope and Belville Elementary Multi-Use Paths. The proclamation specifically stated that “Mr. Boyd’s engineering knowledge and technical expertise have been instrumental to the Town.”

Belville Manager Athina Williams said the Town appreciates Joe’s many years of service. “To say that he is a great asset is an understatement,” she said.

The proclamation and a plaque were presented to Joe at a Town meeting recently. Joe had no idea about the honor and was both surprised and humbled by the recognition.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the Town’s growth; it has been very satisfying to me,” Joe said. “Belville was the first place that I moved to out of college. It’s got a special place in my heart.”

Working out of WithersRavenel’s Wilmington office, Joe is known not only for his engineering expertise, but also for his work ethic and commitment to client service.

“Joe puts in a ton of effort for our coastal team, and we’re glad to see his effort outside of work is getting recognition, too,” said Tucker McKenzie, PE, Director of Site/Civil at WithersRavenel.

A civil engineer at WithersRavenel for more than 10 years, Joe is a graduate of UNC Charlotte with a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering. If you’re looking for civil engineering services and support in the coastal region, reach out to Joe at (910) 509-6505 or
